Day 2 in Puerto Rico

LOCATION:  San Juan, Puerto Rico
WEATHER:  Warm – 86.  Humid, but nice breeze

We explored more of Old San Juan, admiring the colorful houses and interesting architecture.

There are free golfcart-like taxis that you can hop on/off to get you around Old Town.  We took one to La Perla neighborhood.  We had lunch at a roof-top bar.

La Perla neighborhood, right on the water, used to be a bit sketchy but is now being cleaned up and is popular among artists.

We walked around the waterfront, and Melissa toured one of the old forts.  We cooled down with a snow cone – called Piragua here.  Alexis had one made from guavana – soursop in English,

More walking, sightseeing, then back to the AirB&B to clean up.  We drove to Catalina, a beach community about 30 minutes from Old San Juan.  The vibe is totally different here.  We were the only gringas.  It was crazy.  Loud music blaring everywhere, people dancing, families celebrating birthday parties.  We tried mojitos at a beach bar

We watched the sun set with a beautiful rainbow.

Then, back to Old Town where we went for dinner – pizza.  A really nice day.  It feels like we have done a lot here already!
